AZ
The Format

az.jpgDespite always droppin’ intellectually charged street parables, AZ has yet to garner any significant commercial success. Long respected for the lyrical work he’s put in over the years, the hip-hop veteran continues on the independent grind with his sixth studio album, The Format. The layout is familiar—dense couplets and soulful soundbeds—this go round, which has its merits, but also plenty of liabilities.

On the resounding opening track, “I Am the Truth,” AZ explains his mission to save the streets. Over regal horns and swelling strings, courtesy of M.O.P.’s Lil’ Fame, he spits, “Soul music, so intense, so live/It’s no excuses, y’all been so deprived.” Then the usually relaxed Sosa gets amped for “Sit ’Em Back Slow,” his raucous collabo with the Mash Out Posse that’s supported by a diced-up sample of Rick James’ “Mary Jane.” The disc’s climax, however, comes courtesy of the Little Brother–guested “Rise & Fall,” which features a particularly acute verse from Phonte.

The album’s engine stalls from there. Enlisting Lil’ Fame to score a faux-pop club record sounds like a bad enough idea, but adding Dipset’s Jha Jha to the mix makes the pandering “Doing That” almost unbearable. AZ’s overreliance on beats that are framed around drowsy vocal samples is also a factor. Emile’s basic backdrops for “Get High” and “Game of Life” lead to virtually indistinguishable songs, low on replay value.

After over a decade in the game, AZ should know what grooves suit his stocky flow and how to adapt to new ones, but The Format’s rigid consistency leads to its complacency. The Brooklyn native is better served when challenged by atypical production, as on the title track, where DJ Premier’s intense four-beat synth collage inspires lines like, “Built my fame, spilt my pain/Politickin’ daily, still trying to milk the game.” Maybe AZ should’ve checked the expiration date on this homogenous mix, before it sours his legacy further. —ALVIN BLANCO

  • Cuban Link

    1st…………………………and fuck yall u give Lil Wayne and Birdman Xl and only Az, one of the best rappers of all time, a L?He deserveres an XXL easy, he shits all over Jim Jones, and that got and XL(although We Fly High was dope)

  • e aka the real noreiaga

    This album is good. The lyrics are vintage AZ and the production is soulful. If anyone is a fan of his old music this is recommended.

  • Bigakathebeast

  • Wack Review

    Word up to Sean P!

  • Sky LL

    Am curious to know what criteria your magazine use to rate a cd? I think an album that is a classic deserves XXL, an album that is almost a classic except for some missteps should receive an XL. With that in mind, how could Jim Jones’s cd get an XL when his lyrics are not as good as AZ’s. You all need to revamp your whole rating system cause it sucks!

  • rob

    az is rad.

    these dudes is crazy putting Sosa below capo!!!
    i was never one to take much mind into what other people had to say about someone work, but this has to be some dumb shit if i ever read it an L is all AZ gets?!?! fuck’outta’hea

  • The Reason

    This is the reason why real hip-hop can’t reach outside the major cities. Niggas like XXL don’t support the real. Indie cats can’t afford the superficial aspects of the game so they put that energy in their music but a national hip-hop music mag like XXL don’t even support it. Wake up people, they destroying the last voice of the people. Hip-hop. Fuck the Machine!

  • Room112

    AZ is one off the most underrated mcs …U don’t feel his music. I’m sorry

  • HOV!

    ^^^you are so horribly mixed up with ur life seeing that last comment I aint even gonna say anything more.smfh.

    PS AZ isnt the most underrated rapper, Jeru the Damaja is.

  • Tim

    No, AZ is. AZ has been more consistent and still puts out albums to this day. I don’t know where Jeru the Damaja is, and the only really good album he has was Sun.

  • Southside Brooklyn

    AZ is as complex, structured and poised as you can get. You have to wonder how an artist can interact with various artists from Jay to Nas and never get into a beef. He is respected by ALL in hip hop.

    Dominicanos stand up.

  • RCUWM

    fuck this review and fuck xxl. AZ maybe on top of the whole game right now. i can only think of 3 maybe 4 guys right now that spit more intellectual shit that AZ does. this must be a magazine for teeny boppers that listen to wack ass shit like D4L and birdman. whoever wrote this review needs to be fired immediated. it was embarrassing for me to even read it!

  • Vision

    AZ is one of the most consistant MC’s in the game the problem is,Stupidity sales “sign of,the times”Bling Bling bitch,”I got-I got”,He is not the only one,Guru has suffered years!Another thing,how many fuckin times are they going to show “HipHop Beefs” that’s the problem rite there,true MC’s can’t shine!!!

  • New Jersey

    first of all, southern rap, meaning all of it sucks. besides scarface, everything below virgina sucks. but i can’t believe that you would try to knock az. even to this day he doesn’t get as much credit as he deserves and he’s still at it and not givin up. if you can seriously knock az’s hustle then you don’t know what hip hop is. lil wayne is probably one of the worst mc’s to ever come out. whoever made this review must like backstreet boys and shit cuz this is horrible. but that’s that and shits never going to change becuase no body anymore knows what real hip hop is and probably never will remember.

  • real Hip Hop

    Giving Az a L and Lil fuckin Wayne an XL is gayer then michael jackson touchin little boys, i mean, if you like gay dudes kissing and all then i guess liking lil wayne is completely fine. but i agree with nas that hip hop is dead cuz it is. southern rap isn’t rap, it is a whole new genre of music.

  • fuck XXL

    this is fuckin bullshit XXL can suck my dick. this makes me not ever want to read this magazine anymore, Jim Jones and the whole Dipset entourage is a joke. whoever published the reviews must like gay porn becase they do not have there shit straight. this pisses me off

  • XXL Fucking sucks

    You all dont know what underrated means.Yes, AZ doesnt sell as much as he should, but hes credited as being of the best ever.Noone thinks of Jeru as being one of the best, which he is.U saying Jeru isnt the most underrated just proves the fact that he is.

    Also, Wrath of Math is madd good.No hate to AZ, the boys sick too

  • http://www.cityofstars.com Deez’L

    Oh dear lordy!!

    XXL done lost its mind, its startin to remind me of the Sauce..

    AZ is waaaayyy better than Jim Jones… if u like HIP-HOP MUSIC get AZ, if ur only interesting in a cd that is suitable for “low volume background music” then by all means get Jim Jones..

    Its reviews like this that make ppl not know bout AZ… An “L” for AZ and “XL” for Jim Jones??? I mean come on, lets be real about it… dont ppl listen to lyricists anymore?? Hip-Hop really is dead, or at least dying as a culture…

    NOTE TO XXL: SORT OUT YA REVIEWS POLICY COS IT STINKS!!!!

    no seriously it does…

    DZL

  • hiphop listener

    what the fuck is wrong with y’all? this is the last straw for XXL. y’all are supposed to be the ones that can understand that jim jones sucks dick and cats like AZ got skills. y’all are the ones that are supposed to put people up on the real shit. i’ll never buy another xxl, enjoy the taste of birdman’s ass you sellouts.

  • Dj Repose

    How the hell is xxl going to rate Jim jones’s trashy cd above this??? I dont get it…

    POME sucked. Ive heard most tracks on this joint and they are amazingly good.

  • Brock Harder

    This is the reason I don’t buy XXL. This album was one of the best I have heard in the year 2006 and XXL gives it a L? WTF? ALVIN BLANCO KILL YOURSELF!

  • Escobar

    AZ gets an L? AN L? Jesus Tapdancing Christ, AZ gets an L, while weak emcees like Rick Ross get an XL? This is bull; but you know why AZ got an L? He dissed 50 Cent, XXL’s meal ticket. My comment’ll probably get deleted for that, but it’s true. XXL defaces anything that is anti-Interscope, and will continue to do so until they’re no longer in syndication.

  • real recognise real

    az is the god mc,y u cant recognise the mans talent i dont no.the album is bangin. if he did join g-unit no doubt he’d would of got an xl,escobar was right about the interscope comment.xxl fix up.

  • BULLSHIT

    WOW the person who wrote the reviews musta had a dick in his ears when listening to AZ. and a dick in his ass when listening to Lil Wayne and Jim Jones and Rick Ross. AZ’s above XXl THATS WHY

  • AGREEING WITH ‘ESCOBAR’ ^

    XXL is so into interscope, that they get scared of an MC dissing 50 cent. they cant loose interscope, so there intimidated of anyone against anyone on interscope. PEOPLE ARE SCARED OF AN MC THIS GOOD.

  • so wack!!!!!

    cant belive this, MUCH respect to everyone supporting AZ!!!!! everyone that supports AZ knows real rap!! thank god theres some.

  • AZ AZ AZ!!!

    Support AZ!!! One love to everyone here defending and backin AZ up!! show your love to AZ and spread the word on his album! Hes ridiculous wit his words

  • doug

    as always yall are biased you cant rate a good album for what it is despite whether it will have mainstream success, but whatever yall just keep with your shit cause you really dont know what rap is…to yall rap is yung joc and rick ross which those two are among many who have single handedley made rap worse

  • guest

    Um, to put it simply, XXL blows. It’s sad that some people might actually believe you morons have any clue as to what a good hip-hop record sounds like. Get your heads out of your asses and please revamp your rating system too.

  • http://www.myspace.com/dtlocal2global D.T. The Great

    The game is truly fucked up when ya’ll can’t appreciate AZ poetry. These niggas in da game is flat out retarded. Thats why I stared freestyling my music, cause the game is stupid. AZ is 1 of the few that make me realize, nah, ima write this verse and smash it. AZ is TOP 5, if u cant rap better than that man, shut da fuck up. I cant belive he gets a L, I listen to the whole album straight through, Im like its good to hear dat Nigga A, he aint no sellout, ya’ll need to respect dat-D.T.

    L? he must be a g-unit fan.

  • jas

    mann .. i dunno .. its a no brainer az should have gotten at least a XL .. yall need to overlook ur rating system.. cuz some of the albums u have given XL makes me LOL!

  • Marcus

    XXL aint hip hop
    fuck your magazine and your bogus ratings

    you people should be shot.
    seriously

  • E-DOT

    I thought that yall wasnt the SOURCE? It seems that strugglin emcees never get the ratings that gold and plat. rappers get! You cant fool real hip-hop heads with your garbage rating system. Be careful, thats how that other Mag. began their DOWNFALL!

  • Huh?

    Hustler’s P.O.M.E. with wack ass Jim Jones and Max B gets an XL.

    Rick Ross’s weak ass gets an XL.

    But because Royal Salute throws shots at your fucking cash cow you give AZ an L.

    Fuck You XXL

  • HOLY SHIT

    Who the fuck reviewed this? this album deserves way better

  • XXL IS GARBAGE

    XXL is wack. AZ is and always will be one of the best emcess in the game and Imo this one of the top 3 albums put out this year. As always, the lyrics and flow are on point, but for once he’s got some quality production thoughout the entire album. Fuck this review and make sure you pick this up

  • Sha-Elemental

    I cant believe this review, you guys fucked up on this one cause this album is crazy for many different reasons 1.It’s real hip hop 2.AZ puts it down and gets better by the year 3. This guy is the most consistant MC out you allways know your getting quality music when he drops an album 4. Music with a message which is prob why you rated the way you did, oh yeah he isnt on interscope. Seriously this is a sham he at least deserves an XL for this one. What do you want from an album anyway just the same old shit that they play on the radio. Fuck it though, AZ if you reading this you are the truth fuck this review they aparently dont know hip hop like they think they do.

  • braaaap

    AZ aint got NAS thats why this fools album is L cuz nas aint around to hold his hand through the album. L is decent for AZ

  • bk2dr

    DAMN! I’ve only heard like 4 songs of AZ’s new album, but its still way better lyrically than anything I dl from Jim or Luda. I am starting to believe XXL based their reviews on how famous the artist is. And if Jay gets XL, the same as Jim then I know they dont give out XXL’s either. Every famouse artist gets XL. AZ and Jay should get XL, Jim and Luda should be happy with a L.
    Another thing I dont hate on the south for doing what they do (making money, I used to be a Luda fan be4 chicken & beer) but its true that if hip hop keeps going where the south is taking it then its better of dead!
    (At the BET awards Luda was wearin a tee that says “hip hop aint dead it lives in the south” well if it does its gonna die soon.)
    Sad day when the critics and the public neglect real MC’s.

  • real recognise real

    wot a foolish comment.let me guess u a g unit fan aint u.if it were on pure lyrical skillz az would be 10x bigger than those sell outs.believe real recognise real.

  • QUEENZGETTHEMONEY

    damn this cat has alot of loyal fans i didnt bother with his shit since NAS ripped him an asshole on Destroy & build.

  • ptown playa

    AZ is a lyrical genious along with PAP and Tech 9 they are all extremely underrated. If the rap scene had more guys like them and less of that fake shit rap would be umm, you know, good

  • BIG RICH

    Wow… Your rating system is goin to shit ya’ll… First, meth only gets a “L” (one of the best albums I’ve heard in a loooooong time) then ya’ll give AZ only an “L”, and Jim Jones, the opposite of a lyricist gets an XL??? WTF yall thinking. Now some people are sayin “az is a legend so he should get a good rating”, but i know that’s not how ratings work, but an az album is better than Jim Jones just by virtue of not being jim jones…

    What the hell is wrong with your staff at XXL ?

You guys are fucking Hip-Hop up with your distorted views(reviews)on good albums.Your misleading people.The Format is Real Hip Hop unlike Nas’ album Hip-HOP is Dead!!!

    why are u nimrods still blaming the South for everything?…dude album got an L because he’s not in the corporate mix of things like a Jay or a 50, plus he dissed Interscope Jackson so Elliot had one of his goon critics chastise him…that’s it, nothing more, nothing less…plus I think technically AZ raps too damn good for the common day hip hop consumer (you know tha mu’f*$kas Harris Publications are trying to sell to)…AZ is a victim of INDUSTRY POLITICS, not the youth’s infatuation with Down South music…do your homework morons!

  • Jason

    The Format = Best album of 06.

    Alvin Blanco, you bitchass homogay fag, you cannot be serious!!! How old are dickriding, cocksucking bastard? YOU ARE NOT EVEN CLOSE TO SOMEBODY WHO CAN RIGHTFULLY WRITE A REVIEW ABOUT AZ!!! Have you listened to this album anyway? Motherfucker, this is one of the best hip-hop albums in the past 6-8 years you roach. Lyrically, beatwise, this shit is classic. Apart form a few exceptions I do not listen to hip-hop albums made after 1996-1998, and if I do, I do it only to convince myself that rap was sold after this period. But this is one of those exceptions that give me hope that there are at least some left who keep this REAL hip-hop shit alive. And here comes this homo, who gives XL-s to fag rappers and thinks that he is actually right. Maaan, FUCK YOU!

    Since when you ppl care about xxl rate … i don’t give a fuck , AZ is the truth . one more thing it’s over for that ballin’, it’s Brooklyn … Someone from QB said “Put a barrel in the capo mouth,til his scalp comes out”

  • SugarHill

    I really hope noone at XXL is a little “benzino-clone” and is starting a trend where they give good artists low ratings because of hate and jealousy. If so XXL will undoubtedly go the same way the Source did when enough people wake up.

  • chi-town legend

    XXL this is one of the top 3 rap cd’s of the year. Maybe you editors cant understand this knowledge. AZ the God.

  • Junkman

    I’ll admit that the AZ album CAN be seen as simply an “XL.” That’s fine. It is just another album from him, it’s not AWOL. But you know what? There are enough intangibles to make it memorable for me personally, because AZ is THAT lyricist. Yar mean? This album may not be mind-blowing, but it moves AZ quickly ahead on my favorite MC list, catching up to Common. “Game of Life” reminds me almost exactly of “The Corner” in fact. If you don’t like Common nor AZ, that’s a shame, but fuck it!

    HERE WE GO AGAIN, YOU SHEEPLES JUST DONT GET IT!!! JIZZY OR GEEZEY OR WHATEVER YOU CALL HIM IS NOT HIPHOP!!! YOU FUKKIN DUMMIES!!! WHAT DO YOU GAIN FROM LISTENING TO A

    1.A REMEDIAL RAPPER WITH SIMPLE RHYME SCHEMES AND PLAYED OUT SUBJECT MATTER

    2.A RAPPER WHO DOESNT EVEN CARRY THE ESSENCE OF HIPHOP FOR EXAMPLE: 2PAC, BIG, NAS, JAY-Z, AZ

    3.A RAPPER WHO GLORRIFIES STREETLIFE, DEATH, DRUG DEALING AND MISTREATMENT OF OUR BLACK SISTERS

    4.A RAPPER WHO HAS NO EDUCATION AND HAS NO INVOLVEMENT IN THE REAL ISSUES AT HAND, LIKE OUR RACIST CURRUPT GOVERNMENT.

    5.A RAPPER WHO REALLY HAS NO CREDABILITY AND PROBABLY GETS BEAT UP EVERYTIME HE GETS INTO BEEF.

    WHAT WHAT WHAT I ASK, WHERE IN YOUR SMALL MINISCULE BRAINS DO YOU FIND THE CAPACITY TO EVEN BRINGFOURTH THE VILLAGE IDIOT AND PLACE HIM AMONG A PEDISTAL OF ELITES WHEN HE IS NOT WORTHY!!!

    YOU LIKE THAT RASPY DICK IN THE BACK OF YOUR THROAT RAPPING ABOUT NOTHING BUT MATERIAL SHIT!!! YOU FUKKING LAMEWADDSS, HE IS A HUSTLER NOT A HIPHOPPER, NOT EVEN A RAPPER….HES MILKIN THE GAME JUST FOR MONEY, AS IS ALL HIS LAMEASS PEERS, I CHALLENGE GEEZEY AND ANY ONE OF YOU LAMES TO MAKE A SONG WITH SUBSTANCE AND REALNESS, TO MAKE A TRACK WITHOUT 808S AND CLAPS AND HIHATTS AND LITTLE ANOYING SYNTHESIZERS, TO MAKE A SONG THATS NOT ABOUT SOME STUPID DANCE OR GETTING DRUNK IN THE CLUBB OR RIDING AROUND ON YOUR 39INCH RIMS!!!!!!
    HIPHOP ISNT DEAD, ITS JUST GONE UNDERGROUND AND THERE TONS OF QUALITY MUSIC OUT THERE FOR EVERYONE THAT WE ALL CAN FEEL,

    SHIT WE ALL USED TO FEEL TUPAC AND BIGGIE, WHAT THE FUCKK HAPPENED???? WHERE ARE MY TRUE HIPHOP HEADS???? WHERE ARE MY STRONG BLACK AND RICAN BROTHERS WHO WANT TO BRING US OUT OF THE BOX, OUT OF OPPRESSION AND OUT OF THE CONSTANT CIRCLE OF DEATH AND DESTRUCTION……..DONT YOU FUKKIN IDIOTS GET IT….THE INDUSTRY IS RUN BY WHITE PEOPLE, WHO IN TURN WANT TO TRAP THE BLACKS AND LATINOS BY RAPPING YOUR MIND FIRST….A MIND IS A BEAUTIFULL THING TO WASTE, BUT IF YOU WAKE UP EVERYDAY TO 50CENT AND YOUNG GEEZEY, YOU WONT GROW, YOU WONT MAKE IT YOU WONT GAIN, YOUR STUCK IN A LIFESTYLE WHERE YOU ARE UNAWARE, UN AWARE THAT BUSH AND HIS MINIONS HAVE ALREADY LAID OUT THE WORK FOR A NAZI STYLE CONCENTRATION CAMPS…..WHAT IT GETS DEEPER THAN THAT, BUT IF YOU ASK ME, REAL HIPHOP IS A DIAMOND, AND NOW ITS BACK IN THE ROUGH….COMMENTS QUESTIONS OR JUST LOOKING FOR REAL MUSIC COME TO THIS SITE!!!!

  • The truth

    Nas said it best hip hop is dead, the south is fuckin horrible no talent a buch of pussys with corny beats and lyrics. .ppl now a days dont apprciate OGs like AZ, Nas, Biggie, 2pac, jay z, kool g rap, OC, gravediggaz, an manny more… its sad.

  • real recognise real

    dramatic r u and pitpat the same person,cos anyone who repeats the same foolish comment repetitively is a proper fool.if u aint feelin az dont comment its as simple as that.az is the truth,and man keeps it real and boy that mans flow is sick.az may not b large on the mainstream circuit but man is respected on the street level believe cos real recognise real.oneday the world gotta situp and take notice.

  • Rafter

    What You On About The Format is a classic album.how could you say that it aint.i have read the other comments and AZ is amazing you need to get your selves sorted out.if you gona say AZ album aint good hip hop is dead for sure
    all new shit is garbage all that lil wayne fireman shit and pitbull come on to fuck thats unreal.dont fuckn turn into benzino here with the “5 mic giver” come on hip hop is better than all that shit and dont get me started on eminem what a shit head that aint hip hop.hip hop is almost dead
    ALMOST…

  • SugarHill

    AZ is one of the realest niggaz in the game period. All you little finger-poppin’ niggaz don’t know what the fuck true lyricism is.

    AZ is cerebral, meaning his flow requires thought, unlike the majority of rappers out now that still only talk about bitches, money, cars, diamonds and killing other niggaz that are poppin’ their fingers talking about the same played-out shit.

    AZ’s shit is at LEAST as good as Jigga’s lame attempt at a comeback, and MUCH better than Jim Jones.

    100

  • AZ=TRASH

    jim jones>az album

    i rather just hit the books than listen to this nigga rap about shit you can learn in a social class.

    ps. DONT SUPPORT THIS SHIT OR IT WILL JUST KEEP ON COMIN OUT!

  • BSizzle

    ^ Fuck Jim Jones and your stupid ass for listening to that bullshit. Hell, Jim Jones ain’t even a real rapper. Tell that ghostwriter of his that he needs to give it up. AZ gets a XXL yall. Fuck what the magazine thinks. Holla!

    I only have one question…
    Where the hell did most of you learn to write? 90% of the people who post on this site have absolutely no concept of writing in a lucid and direct manner. Have you ever thought about using commas, periods, question marks, or any of the other syntax and grammar tools that have been adopted by the english language to help articulate your mindless rhetoric and “beefs?”

    Here’s a suggestion…
    If you really want someone to get your point, do not write in your street slang. It isn’t near as effective, and it is very hard for the reader to comprehend (not that most of you really have anything important to say anyways).

    You are disgracing yourselves and the people who helped raise and mold you. You are disgracing the hip hopsters you are trying to defend by writing things that don’t convey a real message…just like every one of Chingy’s songs. hahaha

    Final thought…
    Use some sense when you write; you may just “school some niggas.”

    …yes I am an avid hip-hop listener and have been for many years. I have seen it evolve into the crap we see from most artists today. Test my knowledge if you must.

    Aint one that says that AZ isnt the most slept on nigga in the game is crazy. this is a strong effort besides the song with jha jha this is a great album. And i completely agree with AZ on the cast of that Bitch made nigga 50 cent. i wonder what scam on his next album he will pull off.

  • el shaq cholo

    man fuck that shit,The format is dope

  • DoM J

    Check, I read this article a while ago, but to be honest, this album deserves a XL. I wouldnt say no L, cuz then you doing what most ignorant people do that cant advance they minds far enough to understand, you underratiN, but then again he is the most underrated MC of all-time next to Kool G. Rap. I wouldnt give it no XXL tho, cuz its only two tracks(Doing That and Game of Life) that keep it from going there.
    But on the Realz, AZ right now is one of the best lyrically. Yea I know he aint selliN one mill like Jay-Z or Young Jeezy, but if all you do iz look at sales, then you might as well have MC Hammer and Vanilla Ice in ya top 10. The Real Hip-Hop is for the real people, and the mainstream really cant understand the true essence of Hip-Hop cuz most of them are jus music fans listeniN to whatevers hot at the moment. But whats hot, sooner or later becomes cold as times do change like seasons. Im a fan of AZ, but I know he aint Nas, 2Pac, Biggie, Ice Cube or Rakim(yet he is close), but I also know that he aint no Young Jeezy or Young Joc or even a T.I., due to the fact that these artist are jus here for financial reasons and they gimmicks and publicity stunts sell more than there lyrics, definition, and creativity put together.

    Word of Mind, AZ is one of the few artists right now representiN the essence along with common, Talib, Nas, Game, and Jay. I could say 50 too whenever he gets serious on the mic and stop wateriN down his music. 50 helped popularize mixtapes so if it wasnt for him, really you wouldnt have no mixtape awards.
    So respect due to the real, big up to AZ and all the real MCs out there.
    Stay up, stay true, and stay liviN.

  • Bernopolis

    Chi,NY,Philly,The D,…..Please save us from the southern bullshit that almost made me stop listening to HipHop plagueing us for the last several years….Hip-Hop is dead…But Nas,AZ,Jay Z, and the rest of the Midwest/Northeast is providing life support. BLING BLING YOU CORNY ASS FUCKERS. STAY HIP HOP STAY… HOLLA AT A NINJA

  • DoM J

    A’ight Check, for those of you that dont know the difference between a true Hip-Hopper(You know, the REAL emcees(MC), graffitti artists, DJs, & break dancers) and a gimmick, trend follower or not-so-called “rappers”(The niggaz that claim they aint rappers but they hustlers, gangstas, thugs, or whatever they call themselves), think about this for a second.
    Think about your favorite rapper/MC. If there was no money to be made out of Hip-Hop or no fame, or if Hip-Hop didnt blow up as big as it did, do you think they would still be doing what they’re doing? Do you think they’d still be here?
    If any one got a comment on this, leave one word up.
